    Welcome to the site Shawna! It isn't that busy now, but...
    I have a female Red Belly. She is an absolute delight,
    always has been, since the day I brought her home. She is
    a "Mama's girl".

    As you said, each bird is different, and I am sure that there
    are Red Bellies who have a very large vocabulary. I know of
    one on another board I used to visit. That bird had at least
    50 words it knew and used.

    Mine (Darby is her name) says "I love you", "Go nite nite"
    and a couple other things, that were just learned because I
    say them to her when I put her to sleep, but I never
    actually "teach" her words. She does get a lot of out of
    cage time and lots of hands on affection.

    Good luck, they are wonderful birds! Enjoy her..:)
